The Students' Roman Empire part 2, A History of the Roman Empire from Its Foundation to the Death of Marcus Aurelius (27 B.C.-180 A.D.)


Published March 8, 2010


LibriVox recording of J. B. Bury's "The Students' History of the Roman Empire" Vol. 2, read by LibriVox volunteers.

The writings of J. B. Bury (1861-1927), on subjects ranging from ancient Greece to the 19th-century papacy, are at once scholarly and accessible to the layman. This work covers the period from the beginning of the Roman Empire until Gibbon begins; from Augustus through Marcus Aurelius and the Antoinine Emporers. (Summary by kmerline)

For further information, including links to online text, reader information, RSS feeds, CD cover or other formats (if available), please go to the LibriVox catalog page for this recording.

Subject: I'm new here, and I was disappointed at first
My first listen was to Chris Karan's reading of The Principate of Hadrian. It was hard to understand with severe mispronunciations, stilted cadence, and manifest unfamiliarity with the terms. Thankfully I didn't give up and have found other readings helpful.
